Muslim cleric says Mickey Mouse must DIE.

Actually he was talking about mice in general because they are, apparently, “Satan’s soldiers” and thus evil incarnate. What he’s upset about is the fact that Walt Disney and many other creators of cartoons have turned the horrible little critters into characters loved by children:

According to a translation prepared by the Middle East Media Research Institute, an American press monitoring service, he said: “The mouse is one of Satan’s soldiers and is steered by him.

“If a mouse falls into a pot of food – if the food is solid, you should chuck out the mouse and the food touching it, and if it is liquid – you should chuck out the whole thing, because the mouse is impure.

“According to Islamic law, the mouse is a repulsive, corrupting creature. How do you think children view mice today – after Tom and Jerry?

“Even creatures that are repulsive by nature, by logic, and according to Islamic law have become wonderful and are loved by children. Even mice.

“Mickey Mouse has become an awesome character, even though according to Islamic law, Mickey Mouse should be killed in all cases.”

While it’s probably not a bad idea to throw away foot that’s been trampled on by wild mice, it’s hard to take the rest of this nonsense terribly seriously. The sobering reality is that this man is perfectly serious in his pronouncements and, if he had his way, not only would there be an effort to eradicate mice altogether, but any positive portrayals of mice (such as the aforementioned Mickey and Jerry) would be prohibited under pain of death. If this isn’t indicative of how deluded his religion has made him then I don’t know what else would be.

  1. I wish Islam rotsa ruck in eradicating Mickey Mouse, but I doubt they’ll make much headway. Unfortunately, I’ll probably never be able to track it down again, but I once saw a youtube video from Iran (I believe) showing a very young girl, maybe five or six at the most, answering questions, with a guy in a Mickey Mouse costume encouraging her, about how evil the Christians and Jews are.  Chilling.

  2. The most bizarre thing in that article is the labeling of MEMRI as “an American press monitoring service”… Sure they are based in D.C. but it was founded by Israelis.

  3. Islamic law seems to be centered on the idea that people have no willpower of their own and can easily be led astray even by people and things that aren’t even specifically geared towards that purpose.  Even if I subscribed to their wacky rules (and most of them are pretty wacky, if not downright dangerous), I would feel insulted that my leaders seem to have such a low opinion of me that they must protect me from billboards advertisements and entertainment venues, as if just because I see a Mickey Mouse cartoon, I’m going to start inviting mice into my house and let them eat off the same plate as I do.  How can anyone NOT feel insulted by that attitude?

    This is the enlightened civilization they keep talking about?  This is what their God thinks of them?

  4. “Islamic Law” in this case is a crazy nut who is running at the mouth… Heck, according to “Islamic Law” Nintendo is supposed to send me a free Wii with Wii-Fit, but for some reason that hasn’t happened!?

  5. Swordsbane, these Muslims wackos haven’t cornered the market. Some Christian fundies and Jewish ultra-orthodox aren’t that far behind, it’s just that they exist in societies where they can be challenged.

  6. Keep Jerry, but by all means, kill of Mickey immediately and everything associated with him.  Seriously.

    Maybe not EVERYTHING, but a serious change at Disney is certainly warranted.  These were the guys who tried to make it illegal to have wine inside Disney World in France…. IN FRANCE.. and then wondered why no one would come to the park.

  8. Mickey Mouse is stupid anyway.
    I can’t believe Disney relies on it for it’s logo.
    Stupid is Mickey Mouse.

    Stupid is Mickey Mouse.

    They do it because MM still makes money.  Like everything in Hollywood (and pretty much everything where money changing hands is involved) trying something new is what you do when everything else fails.

    Also keep in mind that every few years, there are kids for which Mickey Mouse is brand new, so when people stop paying to see him, Disney will stop updating the image and he’ll start collecting dust, but not before.

  10. Muslims are nothing but opportunistic fanatics.They have been like this from the beginning.For them religion is nothing but a big business.They have no moral,ethical or social values.Their religion is based on hatred for other people and other religions.The west has been too lenient and tolerant of this Islamic Mafia.It is now time that they should be shown their proper place,which can only be accomplished by banning all their stupid dress codes,veils,scarfs and rotten ideas from the peaceful western society.
